New resilience funding for Community Councils

The National Resilience Centre has launched a new fund for Community Councils looking to develop their own community resilience plans.

Funding of up to £500 is available to Community Councils who want to create resilience plans to support the community response to the impact of bad weather, including flooding, storms, high winds and heavy snowfall.

Applications for this fund close on 31 January 2024.

The NCR has also launched a second Third Sector, Community and Practice Fund, which will support the adoption and implementation of place-based approached to resilience. This fund is aimed at groups which have already developed resilience plans and which are now looking to deliver practical activities which will help their community deal with the impact of natural hazards.

Funding of up to £15,000 is available through this stream, and the closing date for applications is also 31 January 2024.
